Hawaii is home to waterfalls, breathtaking views and miles and miles of beaches. So many picturesque views to have your wedding with close friends and family or just the two of you. Below are our top five places to say I Do.

Hawaii Wedding Venue Ideas

Kaui Wedding Venue: Kaui wedding venue is located on Kauai, the oldest island in Hawaii and is a twenty minute flight from Honolulu. With verdant rain forests, angelic white sand kissing the sapphire ocean, breathtaking waterfalls, spectacular desert land and majestic mountains, there are a ton of amazing things to do and see for your Hawaiian destination wedding.

The Grand Hyatt: This is our pick for a venue in Hawaii. With  several options for your ceremony and enough ocean view rooms for you and all your guests, the entire trip is sure to be beautiful. The Big Island Wedding Venue: The Big Island is bigger than all of the other Hawaiian Islands combined and boasts 11 of the world’s 13 climactic zones within it. It offers a playground of adventure from deep sea fishing, water skiing in azure blue waters, hiking in lush rain forests, trekking across vast desert, and mountaineering the snow topped Mauna Kea.

Puakea Ranche: This is our selection for a private Hawaiian wedding. With just four private vacation homes set upon colorful acres of land, you are taken to a place where time slows down and you get to live out your special moments with only a few others in the proximity. See a Real Rustic Bohemian Elopement in Hawaii at the ranch here.

Maui Wedding Venue: Maui is a great place to sit on the sand and see the Humpback whales, unwind on a sandy beach, and just take in all the beauty. Our Maui wedding venue pick is Dragon Fruit Farm, a diversified USDA certified organic farm located in West Maui about a five minute drive from Lahaina, with stunning ocean views, plenty of parking.

Lanai Wedding Venue: Lanai is a more laid-back and intimate atmosphere, with no stop lights and hardly any paved roads. This is the place to truly get away from it all. For intimate weddings with just the two of you off to a luxury destination. For several ranges in wedding packages, Four Seasons Lana’i at Manele Bay can accommodate. They also list all of their packages online and can take care of anything you need on this remote island.

Oahu Kualoa Ranch: From beach, to garden, to authentic island paradise retreats, Kualoa features an array of options for you to get married. Oahu Kualoa Ranch is located on the northeastern side of Oʻahu in the Hawaiian countryside, it is 45 minutes from Honolulu. The ranch terrain varies from dense rainforest to broad open valleys and from beautiful white sand beaches to verdant cliff faces. You may recognize this location – a handful of shows and movies have been filmed here like -50 First Dates and the ever so popular TV show, Lost.

Lovely Wedding Remembrances

Yellow and grey were the colors of the day, and such a cute day it turned out to be! Gorgeous blooms from DIRT Flowers, darling stationery from Paper Source, and a beautiful venue, Cross Timbers Winery, made the day all the more perfect. The cherry on top that sweetened up the wedding was the dessert bar featuring Zenzero Bakery and Sprinkles, with mason jar desserts! Be sure to scroll down to see the sweet and lovely wedding remembrances below.

Help yourself to a second serving of sweetness from this wedding and view the full gallery here, splendidly photographed by June Bug Company.

Where you came from will always be a part of you, and this bride chose to create a stunning display of her roots. Three generations of wedding dresses all in a row made for a very beautiful sight. They even had lights under them so they could be viewed at night. One of the most amazing wedding remembrances we have ever seen. Don’t you think?

Guest wrote their well wishes on a wooden plank that had the portraits of the couple mounted on it from their engagement session. A lovely wedding remembrance to hang in their new home together.

Bright centerpieces are always a great way to add pops of color to your reception. By no means do you have to use the same flowers for every table! Mix and match a little to give each table its own unique feel.

Aren’t mason jar desserts just the cutest? We sure think so! And they’re so easy to create:
1. Gather up a suitable amount of mason jars for your guest list.
2. Fill it with your favorite homemade treat or have your favorite dessert vendor, like Zenzero Bakery, fill it with their yummy goodness for you.
3. Add some undeniably cute touches, such as bakers twine bows, custom stickers, glitter, and more!

Ten Wedding Registry Items You Should Add

Add Items To Your Registry

How much fun are you having building your wedding registry? You’ve been meticulously planning out the perfect registry for months, and are all set with your beautiful dinnerware, your complete flatware set, new towels, that amazing mint colored mixer, and those adorable napkins. Now all the things you have been coveting for you new home will soon be yours!

You might think you have everything you need, but we have a few  you might have missed. Here are our ten registry items we think you should add to your Macy’s Wedding Registry, that you may have forgotten about.

Macy's wedding registry items

Dish Rack
That glorious China Set that you registered for is not dishwasher safe. Yes… you need to hand wash them! Luckily we can personally vouch for this simplehuman Dish Rack. It is really amazing! Even though we have a dishwasher, it is used daily. Our favorite feature is the oversized utensil holder for our knives that are not dishwasher safe, and that removable wine glass holder is great when we have guests over. Generally your wine glasses are dishwasher safe, but for your extra fancy ones you will want to wash them by hand.

Trash Can
Although a trash can is not exactly glamorous and tends to hide under the sink, it will more than likely be your most used gift. Choose one that will sort trash and recyclables, making you one step closer to saving the planet. Bonus! This smarthuman Trash Can comes with a 10-year warranty! So, you can ask for another one at your ten year vow renewal.

Hamper
After you have organized your wardrobes, you’re going to need to put those dirty clothes somewhere. Register for a sturdy hamper like this Neatfreak Hampers, Everfresh Laundry Triple Sorter that doubles as an ironing board. Hello space saver! Plus this triple sorter has environmentally-friendly enzymes built into the fabric of the sorters to keep your laundry room stink and stench free. Since we all know your husbands socks do not smell April fresh.

A High Powered Vacuum
like the Dyson DC50 . This  mega machine works in parallel to increase airflow and capture even more microscopic dust. We promise that you will use this almost daily, and be happy that your floors and the air around you is clean. A higher priced registry item, but a must have!

Iron
Since you have that handy dandy new ironing board, upgrade to a new iron. The Rowenta DG5030 is powered by steam, wrinkles virtually melt off your clothing. A little pricer than a regular iron, but unless you have just bought in a commercial laundry system for your own home, less trips to the dry cleaner…Hooray!

Roasting Pan
Guess whose turn it is to cook for the next holiday? Yep … yours. Trust us you will use it again and again to host your loved ones. Especially if you use this gorgeous Mauviel Tri-Ply Copper Roasting Pan… it will make you want to cook again and again. Bonus, it has a lifetime warranty, so it is your forever roasting pan – just like your love.

Serving Platter
Speaking of holidays, since you are getting the roasting pan, might as well get the platters too. You will need to cook the turkey and dish it up, even though those aluminum bakers pans are handy it will be an eye sore at your table. Be sure to register for extra platters and serving dishes to prepare for your first holiday dinner. Just like the Villeroy & Boch Urban Nature Collection above. We love the modern relaxed flair it has, and that it is dishwasher and microwave safe… bonus!

Food Storage
Since you are going to become an extraordinary chef with all your amazing new gadgets, you are going to have a lot of leftovers. Be sure to register for a food storage system that is also easily stored. The key to a spic and span space. We love ones with different colored lids to brighten things up like this The Pyrex 19 Piece Bake, Store and Prep Set.

Herb and Spice Rack
Again, all about optimizing space and organizing your kitchen is key. You can toss out all of your free floating spices and use this Martha Stewart space-saving spice rack. Place it on your counter top, and it will not take up a lot of space, because it sits flush against the wall leaving lots of room for all those fancy meals you are going to make.

Closet Organizer
With this easy system, you can extend hanging space. The Neat Freak Organization System does not require any tools for installation and is so easy to move and shift around when your wardrobe or your closet grows. With a one year warranty you can get a new one for your first anniversary if need be.

Although some of the items are not incredibly glamorous, we assure you they are all things you will use daily, and will be so glad you added them to your Macy’s wedding registry. Do you think we missed any? Let us know, helpful tips are always appreciated. Happy Wedding Planning!
